Rapid advances in manufacturing technology have undoubtedly provided modern consumers with more choice than their ancestors but they’ve also caused us to cast aside many centuries-old artisanal crafts in favour of cheap mass-produced goods. Thankfully there are enough bastions of enthusiasm left to keep these historic trades from disappearing altogether, and the last few decades have seen a resurgence in the popularity of ‘investment’ products.
Our MC1 leather music case is a prime example, handcrafted by highly skilled workers who spare no expense in creating products that will last a lifetime. Each leather hide used to make the cases comes from reputable British sources and is sanded by hand to remove any imperfections before being tanned using state-of-the-art environmentally friendly methods. Each panel is then individually cut out, inspected, and stitched together according to the familiar classic design.
Its opening/closing mechanism consists of a metal bar that hooks over the carrying handle, held in place by riveted loops of leather. This ingeniously simple system makes it quick and easy to open the flap and keeps everything extremely safe and dry when closed. Also, with no zips or clasps to weaken it, the resulting bag is practically indestructible! Inside there is enough room to fit a good pile of music and instrument accessories, and even a laptop or tablet.
The MC1 represents remarkably good value for money and is available in a huge range of colours so you can match your music case to your school colours, or pick something that will stand out in a crowd. There’s also a newer model available – the MC2 – made with even thicker, better quality leather.
